A huge accident took place about three hours ago in Packard's Corner at the intersection of Comm Ave and Brighton Ave. At around 7am, a medical delivery truck plowed through at least seven cars on Comm Ave before hitting another car head on and causing an explosion.

Obviously if you need to drive in that direction, traffic is going to be a mess. I'm not sure if they've cleaned it up yet but if you were planning on going down in that direction - cancel your trip.

Comm. Ave outbound has been closed to traffic in the area.

Green B Line trolley service between Babcock and Blandford Streets is suspended. The MBTA is busing between Blandford Street and Brighton Avenue.

    WOW! I saw this on my way into work this morning. I was on the bus on the Mass Pike heading to Copley Square and there was TONS of black smoke coming from the Allston direction. I was wondering what it was! Thanks for the post.
